Current fares now start from only £1999pp for a four week cruise in September, on the classic ocean liner Marco Polo sailing from Liverpool.

Marco Polo departs from Liverpool on 1st September in the afternoon, there is no flying involved and on board the currency is sterling. This epic journey spends 17 days exploring Eastern Canada and includes seeing Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and the St Lawrence River, which is usually outstandingly colourful in September. Also off your check list are Halifax, Montréal and Québec offering outstanding scenery, history and culture.
The fare quoted is based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin and includes delicious full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late night snacks, Captain’s Cocktail Party, complimentary tea & coffee 6am to midnight, big show entertainment, cabarets and classical interludes, daytime activities and leisure facilities, guest speaker and arts & crafts, porterage of luggage, port to cabin and port taxes. For greater convenience CMV operate an automatic tipping system on board, so instead of worrying how much and when to tip, an amount of £4pp per night will be debited to the passenger’s on board account.
